Athlon Sports Cover 2 College Football Podcast (general)

Shea Patterson is eligible at Michigan - how does that impact our rankings and how did he end up there? How do we feel about recruiting active players? We know how one coach feels.

Who is the best NFL quarterback to have played in the Big 12? The discussion is bizarrely lacking in answers. The SEC won the NFL Draft and the first round again but what does it mean, if anything?

And the ACC's five big questions center around new coaches, premiere programs, the Coastal Division's randomness and, of course, Clemson.

The guys start to look ahead at spring storylines in college football. The coaching hot seat is top of mind. Why do people think Jim Harbaugh is on the hot seat? Who else should be concerned about their job at the Power 5 level?

The Big 12 has a very interesting QB situation this season as Will Grier is back. But then what else does the league have under center?

The guys also comment on the Michigan State situation, discuss home and homes versus neutral site games and argue about Network television.

A special edition of the POD, the guys support the Committee's decision to put Alabama in over Ohio State. It was the right thing to do and they explain why. Clemson, Oklahoma and Georgia (as Braden predicted) easily earned their way in as well. And will the events of this season lead to expansion?

Oh, and the guys make their picks for the national championship tournament, breaking down both the Rose and Sugar Bowls.

All hell has officially broken loose in college football. How concerned should Clemson be? Did Auburn take the biggest drop? And what the hell happen in the state of Washington? 

On the positive side, who is better: TCU or Wisconsin? How did LSU and Miami come away with wins? What do we make of the Big 12 after a good old-fashioned Red River Shootout?

Notre Dame, Michigan St, NC State and Stanford continue to improve - even without playing a game.

And one special tribute is back.

The SEC is too big for one podcast, so our preseason rankings and debate series continues with the SEC East.

As we start to break down the preseason rankings, we look at the trends that will shape the East. Missouri won the division a year ago and has the consensus top quarterback in the East, but can the Tigers repeat? We’re not sold.

Florida may be an X-factor with a healthy Jeff Driskel, but Georgia and South Carolina have the most complete teams aside from quarterback questions.

We also took reader questions this week from Twitter and Facebook. Have a question you’d like to have answered on the podcast? Tweet us at @AthlonSports or email podcast@athlonsports.com.
